There is a myth out there that using anti-ageing products too early actually makes you look older, sooner. But that’s because many people don’t understand what ‘anti-ageing’ products actually are. You could even say that the best anti-ageing cream is actually sunscreen – but luckily, even if the damage is done, there are serums to help correct and prevent further signs of ageing from appearing.
Any product that protects your skin from environmental assault and nourishes your skin can be described as anti-ageing. Even just a simple routine of keeping skin moisturised and protected from the sun is anti-ageing.
If you have few visible signs of ageing, the most important thing is to prevent damage from environmental stressors such as UV exposure and pollution, and protect your skin as much as possible. Focus on using products that provide potent antioxidant support and hydrate your skin to support luminosity and glow.
For someone with few visible signs of ageing:
If you’re just starting to show some visible signs of ageing, it’s important to help support collagen synthesis to help delay the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. High moisture levels are also critical for helping to fill out and plump skin, reducing the appearance of age-related wrinkles. The focus should be on minimising the appearance of existing fine lines and prevent more from forming.
For someone with some visible signs of ageing:
For someone with more visible signs of ageing, supporting the skin’s natural collagen production with peptides and antioxidants while keeping skin nourished and moisturised will be the best defence for smoother, youthful looking skin. The focus is on increasing the skin’s natural firmness and elasticity. A focus on using products containing Matrixyl peptide formulas is critical for supporting a youthful, bouncy appearance.
